About This File

This is my first Doom (2) map. I thought it would be fun to remake my first Doom (2016) map. This is why there are so many unusual features, like double hallways, as it's based on the Snap Map prefab modules. I had to change a few things, to account for Doom's limitations, and also just to experiment with some different ideas.

The original Doom (2016) version of this map can be found on Snap Map. The map ID is VYQD8XR5.

First of all, I love that the author has put love into the map, you can tell by simply the Marine on the ground (it made me laugh)

The map is fine apart from some minor beginner errors, I would recommend making the hallways narrower, having them be so big doesn't really add anything when there is only 1 enemy or none at all.

 

I liked the map for its simplicity, yes, I would have wished that the rooms like the dining room, where the life potions are, had been more frequent, more than anything because of the amount of enemies and life there are.

Everything is too big and/or empty, some parts are literally useless door transitions without anything in it, monsters are ridiculously placed… What a shame, because we feel like the author could had made better, but stayed on something way bellow its means :/

Well, I'm saying that, but this is a first map after all, so I don't want to be too bad, and leave a 3/5 as Misty did, but this objectively deserve less.

I didn't see anything new, besides some newbish mistakes, which can be fixed with some experience and help. Hallway and flat design, small ceiling sectors for trying to hide additional door texture, lots of empty spaces and way too little monsters to kill. Old good Doom doesn't work that way, I recommend study more good maps and check how they made things. For first time effort I'm leaving 3 stars.

      Enigma is not exactly my cup of tea; the mandatory secrets are a bit annoying and the confusing layout of the maps doesn't help much. Still, the maps are fun to navigate and they feature some great architecture that lead to unique gameplay encounters. Overall, it's decently fun.

      Nothing better than baiting the Bazooka Man into blowing himself up! Obituary doesn't pull any punches; you'll be facing tons of hitscanners and plenty of nasty traps, but you'll get to appreciate the fine work the Möller brothers did with this WAD. The maps are intricately designed with a judicious use of textures, some of them custom-made. The new array of weapons is great, especially the flamethrower, which can shred down a cyberdemon in seconds! The low point might be the plain secret map and icon of sin fight, but overall, Obituary strikes home more often than not.

      In recent years, general opinon of MM seemed to move towars negative, moreso than any other classic 90's megawad. It's nice to see it recieve some positive attention and even though I'm not exactly a reviewer, I figured I'd join in. Aside from couple rough maps, it remains a great experience today. Generally good and varied vanilla visuals with beautiful highlights like Maps 05, 13, 14 and 21, certainly helped by some great, really cool custom textures, which fit in with the classic ones incredibly well, much better than any other 90's custom stuff (aside from Eternal Doom, but that's a completely different aesthetic). The maps are quite varied without the whole thing becoming incosistent/all over the place and the variety really helps blaze through the whole thing. In comparison, while I prefer MM2 in terms of individual levels, it has a ton of long or similar maps back to back, which can get tiring and take much longer to geth through. Another aspect of MM I really like is some really, unique and fun design choices, or even whole map designs that you don't see much these days for some reason. The Innocent Crew's maps especially are very creative in fun and refreshing ways. Incredibly underrated mappers. Literally everyone knows this already, but Mark Klem's music is amazing.

      This could've been one of the first 32 level megawads that I played after completing the base games. I've played many more since then, and I can honestly say, for a megawad dating back to 1996, it still holds up brilliantly against a lot of modern wads.    Also @DoomGuy999, about that criticism about maps being coop exclusive... "Most levels were made for co-op play, all levels are playable alone as well."   Not exactly sure what you were expecting after having an explicit statement right there.

      This is a fine map with a lot of work put in it. I really liked the attention to details and the overall atmosphere of the map. The intended  path is a bit hard to decipher at times, but it ends on a high note.
